Sutherland Shire Mayor Carol Provan has made her position on the culture and identity of the Sutherland Shire very clear.
Last November, when the Liberal Coalition Premier of New South Wales, Barry O’Farrell, launched an unprecedented ideological racist attack upon Australians in the Hawkesbury and the Sutherland Shire, he denounced these places as “too monocultural” and “subject to an immigration pushed policy of ethnic cleansing”.
Mayor Provan joined right in. She said that the Shire had moved on since December 2005 (the time of the Civil Uprising) and chatted on about refugees, diversity and new immigrant groups.
Now Mayor Provan is developing her hatred of Australians into actual organization.
While the following document mentions a couple of Euro groups as part of multiculturalism (ultimately they will assimilate to Australian culture), the impress of this document is rather clear. We reproduce it.
Australia First Party will promote the genuine heritage and identity of the Sutherland Shire as part of its essential politics. Traitor Mayor Provan should understand that Australia First Party never forgets.
